CHOPPED STRANDS
Chopped Strands are durable fiberglass strands chopped to various uniform lengths and designed to be combined with a wide variety of resins, both thermoset and thermoplastic.
The advanced forming sizes used on chopped strands contribute to high physical and electrical properties in the moulding and permit easy processablity.
Applications
The Fiberglass chopped range includes products for reinforcing polyester and phenolic moulding compounds, for large variety of thermoplastics and for non-plastic materials like calcium silicate and gypsum. They are designed foe use in a variety of applications which utilize the compression and injection moulding processes.
Typical applications include components for the automobile, electrical, textile and consumer appliance industries.
Product Benefits
Chopped strands offer the best combination of the following properties:
High strand integrity, providing ease of handling and feeding.
Outstanding mechanical and thermal properties in the moulded products.
Excellent colour retention.
Excellent surface finish.
